I found in our forums the following situation: the "full screen" editor option is not always available.
 
This is the summary of my forum layouts regarding the availability of "full screen" editing option:

   - edit Topic: NO
- Reply to Topic: NO
   - edit reply to topic: NO
- Reply to reply: NO
   - edit reply to reply: NO
 
 
On our forum the replies are very often long and elaborated edits (particularly on "threaded" layout). Not having the full screen option deprives the user from important tools, such as:
  • strikethrough text
  • horizontal line
  • justify text
  • undo
  • redo
 
but especially the possibility to work within a wider editor window and with editing tools always immediately on top.
 

 
 
Please, is there a way to make it available on all editing instances in "threaded" layout?
 
 
Thanks

Sorry, I'm not allowed to do that, it's a private forum.

But you don't need to, this forum is in the same situation (at least on my browsers) see attached file.

In this attached file you can see the "full-screen" option available in the Migrate from Other Forum Plugins > bbPress Q&A forum.

@jorgew,

I see. It's made by design, so the threaded layout is like a comment discussion under a blog post, the comment form should not have all features of the blog post editor. That's why you have more options in topic editor than in reply editor.

Thanks for your reply @robert.

I find this "full-screen option" (FSO) made available/unavailable "by design" not very consistent and a bit confusing.

I've prepared a more detailed case-scenarios:

Is FSO available?

As I said in the topic 

On our forum the replies are very often long and elaborated edits (particularly on "threaded" layout).

Our forum can sometimes deal with complex discussions (in terms of layout) that require the ability to have advanced editing tools being available at all levels of participation: topic, reply to topic, reply to replies, (comments NO), etc. (We started in 2019 with wpForo having available rich editor options)

 

This is my request for help:

1 - Is it possible to make all editors on all layouts have the FSO available for all instances?

2 - If "1" was not possible, how could we get to the following scenario?

FSO made available on Threaded layout only:
- Topic: YES
   - edit Topic: YES
- Reply to Topic: YES
   - edit reply to topic: YES
   - Reply to Reply ("Comment" equivalent): NO
      - edit reply to reply: NO

 

Thanks
